Early afternoon on Mon. Oct. 29, Pulaski County deputies were notified that a burglary in progress in the 21000 block of Route Y was interrupted by the home owner, who then chased the burglar out the front door of the home. The home owner was slightly injured during a confrontation at the front door with the suspect, who was last seen running through the woods away from the home.
A number of deputies responded; one went to the home to start an investigation and the rest began a search of the area. A detailed description of the suspect was broadcast to all deputies and, a short time later, a Pulaski County deputy saw a car pass on Route Y with a subject matching the clothing description in the vehicle. The deputy stopped the car and St. Robert City Police responded as backup.
Working closely together, the deputy at the home and the deputy on the car stop developed probable cause, which later turned into an arrest after a 24-hour hold, to detain one suspect from the vehicle. A statement of probable cause was sent to the Pulaski County Prosecutor requesting charges for the incident.
The prosecutor filed one count of burglary first degree, a class B felony, and one count of assault third degree, a class A misdemeanor, on Dylan Patrick Orr, age 19, of 13881 Highway O, Dixon, Missouri. Orr's bond was set at $110,000 and he remains in the Pulaski County Jail pending the posting of bond.
